    Off Working Hours : During our volunteers' time off, they are encouraged to relax and enjoy the nature. The natural surroundings include the spectacular views of the rivers, waterfalls, hot water springs and exploring the jungle and mountain peaks. As the country lodge is close to the Hulu Langat Forest Reserve, self-arranged tours and jungle trekking excursions can be made at the forest trails and to the mountain peaks with stops at beautiful Sungai Tekali and Sungai Gabai Waterfalls and as well as the rejuvenating Dusun Tua Hot Water Springs. Experience the lifestyle of the local community and to the unique local culture and traditions.
